It was a pleasant surprize to come across this beautiful hotel in such a tiny peaceful town. It took my breath away. How many times have we ridden past not knowing of this Jewel of a Hotel.






Just a little history on the Vrede Hotel.

The hotel in Vrede was originally established in 1887 and has undergone numerous restorations, various names and several owners in its lifetime.
The original double story building, the Hotel Union, provided accommodation for 40 guests and 50 horses because horses with carriages was the primary mode of transport in the 19th century. The hotel boasted with a spacious dinning room, two lounges, a cigar lounge and billard table. The hotel's other "claim to fame" was their Italian chef and two British barmen.

In the early 1900"s the hotel was renamed the Hotel Grand. At this stage the hotel could offer 30 guest hot and cold running water in communal bathrooms. Guests could also park their vehicles in one of four lockable garages.

Years later the hotel became the Balmoral and in 1968 the building was destroyed in a rampaging fire. The Balmoral was rebuilt as a smaller, single story hotel which was operating as a hotel well into the new millennium with some of the rooms being converted into apartments for permanent tenants.

In 2011 after more than 2 years of restoration and repairs the hotel was reopened as Vrede Hotel. The modern hotel was restored to its formal glory as a double story building and is a family driven business.
